Great local pizza

Inexpensive and delicious. Fantastic pizza (thin crispy crust), great salads, nice staff, nice large outdoor covered seating. Mostly populated by locals.

We were staying at the Waldorf Astoria nearby and needed a good value place for dinner within walking distance. This place was perfect with tasy dishes that suited the whole family

Our first night in Rome, we decided to dine out at this great little Italian pizzeria very close to the Waldorf Astoria. We were the only Americans in the restaurant, and it was a delight. Helps if you know how to speak just a little Italian! Our dinner was fabulous and very well priced. The service was excellent, and they... More

There was something for everyone. My wife had a fried pumpkin flower as an appetizer, my kids had skewers and a burger, and I had the mozzarella and prosciutto. They have a good selection of beers and wine, the staff is friendly, and the prices were reasonable. would definitely return.

We are staying at the Waldorf and needed a break from $50 cheeseburgers. (More on the Waldorf in a separate review.) The concierge sniffed and said it was just a pizzeria, but it really hit the spot. Very clean, almost all Italians, nice interior. For some reason in the US, we rarely see really thin crust pizza. I had porcini... More

this place has nothing fancy but it is your typica trattoria in the neighborhood where you see families, youngsters and some tourists (but very few). quality is good, service is good and prices are cheap. exactly what you are looking for if you are not into "fancy and trendy" places. I am going there everytime i am in Rome.

Our waitress could not have been kinder or more friendly. She was sweet to our kids and helped us order and improve our Italian. The food was very good. This is not fine dining but it is a welcoming, family environment. We went 2 or 3 times during a 3-week stay in Rome, as it was the best within walking... More

When I have city breaks away I much prefer to eat away from the tourist traps. This is just the place for that! Good portions, excellent pasta and pizza. Good beer. What more can a foodie want when in Roma for the weekend. Yes service is a bit slow (reference to some reviews below), but come on, the place was... More

Tried a couple of time for dinner with friends. It does not suite my tastes neither for food quality nor for service and location. Outside tables are a better but nevertheless, prices are above what i would pay for an average place.
